Fire officials with the Missoula County Fire Protection Association (MCFPA) dropped the wildland fire danger within Missoula County from moderate to low on Thursday. That's the lowest level of fire danger.

Recent days have seen lower temperatures, higher relative humidity, and widespread precipitation. The forecast for the next several days is similar.

Fire officials urged the public to continue to be careful with fires, especially during windy days.

If you burn a slash pile or field, you are responsible for suppression costs if the fire escapes. Bowhunters and campers need to make sure their warming fires are cold to the touch and dead-out before being left.
